What You Can Do

Friends of Accion tries to keep administrative costs minimal, and volunteer support is our key to success.  You can help us in many ways, and we encourage creativity—if you think of a way you’d like to help us that’s not on this list, please let us know.

Donate Money

Accion’s programs are helping to educate the next generation of Mayan Mexicans, build houses and places to worship, and providing emergency relief. Please join us in these efforts by making a donation.

  •  To make a donation, mail a check made out to “Friends of Accion” to:
Friends of Accion
c/o Covenant Presbyterian Church
1000 E. Morehead St.
Charlotte, NC 28204-2813
  • Click the “donate” button above to make a one-time donation or set up monthly giving through our secure “PayPal” site.

Sponsor a Student

Our Student Houses and VIM programs require regular monthly dollars per student to operate.  Levels of student sponsorship are detailed on the BECAS page. Please consider pledging your support so that these vital programs can continue and grow to provide educational opportunities for deserving children.

Keep in touch

  • Pray for our ministries
  • Keep in touch by liking our Friends of Accion Facebook page and sign up to receive about 2 newsletters per year.  (To sign up, send us your name and email in the contact fields at the bottom of this page.)
  • Make a presentation at your church / school / community service group (we will provide the materials) and collect a special offering for Acción

Visit us

  • Bring a team of short term missionaries to Mexico for a Work Team project
  • Contact leaders at the bottom of the page about the possibility of an Acción Mission Tour, lasting up to one week. This could be an option for people who are considering bringing a Work Team to Mexico, want to learn more about Acción Ministries, and/or can’t do the physical labor of a Work Team project.


If you want to volunteer but can’t travel to Mexico, there may be other ways you can help us right where you are.

  • Are you tech-savvy?  Would you like to help us improve the website?  We need some help creating and editing videos and publications.
  • You may be able to help our nonprofit Board of Directors with administrative tasks or pro bono services.
  • Organize a fundraising event such as a bake sale, dinner party, or musical event.

Contact Richard Neidinger (see bottom of page) to discuss any of these options or how you might like to help.
